Kobe Bryant is confident that the Houston Rockets will never reach the mountaintop as long as the team plays through James Harden and his isolation heavy style of basketball. "I don't think that style is ever going to win championships," Bryant told ESPN's Rachel Nichols. "But, at the same time, you have to keep your team’s head above water to win games, so you have to do what you have to do to win games, and he's doing that, right?"
"Not with this style of play, it won’t win, with one player dominating the ball," Bryant added. "Now, when you have Chris Paul come back, and you have more movement to the offense where you move guys around where you’re harder to find."
